Well designed fountain, the mechanism is behind the white barrier so it doesn't float around, which is a problem in the tear drop design and the water doesn't spill over the edge. It is easy to clean and you can change the spout to have a spout of water (quite noisy) to a flow down the surface (quiet). Cats seem to like it drinking from the spout and pool. Good value for money, especially as the motor would be easy to replace if needed.
great value , works a treat
one cat of course had to have a play and try to upend it , but she quickly settled down and is happy to use it. The other girl is much quieter ; she struggled at first to work out how to get the stream of water without it going on her nose(which she clearly didn't like!) After a couple of hours though , they were both using it without any issues. The only drawback I've found , is the connection to the pump ; when you clean it out it is quite a loose connection so in putting it back down it can work loose ; it would be better if it clicked in more securely.
My cats won't drink from a bowl but are happy to drink from this 'running water'... doesn't need plumbing, simply needs power socket. Worth ordering extra filters at the same time, save postage on a separate order... just my opinion tho..
Good product, which achieves the aim of encouraging our cats to drink more water. It comes with 2 spouts - one which creates a little fountain (one cat loves it, one is frightened of it!) and one which makes a more gentle waterfall. Exactly what we wanted at a reasonable price.
Cat seems to be happy with this.
Also doubles as a white noise machine when you're trying to go to sleep.
Only issue is the sound of running water seems to make me need the toilet a lot.
Cat took to it straight away!
I bought this for my cat as he is quite fussy about water and only drinks it if it is very fresh, which means I end up refilling his bowl very frequently to make sure he drinks enough (especially as he is on a dry food diet).
The fountain was very easy to set up and get going. Within seconds of me turning it on and the water starting to flow, the cat approached it curiously and slightly hesitantly. But within under a minute he was happily drinking away. He's used it several times already and has definitely been drinking more water. Although I left his usual bowl down just in case, he's ignored it completely in favour of his new fountain!
I've never had or seen the point of pet fountains but our furry family has grown from 2 dogs to include 2 kittens -all drinking from the same water bowl. We bought as it keeps the water fresh. They al love it & use it without reserve. One thing my husband & I detest is the noise of it. However they may all be noisy so I've nothing to compare it to. Our furries would recommend it if they could.
My cat hates water that has been stood around for any length of time and has taken to jumping into the kitchen sink and licking the tap for fresh water! Bought this to see if we could convince him to go back to a bowl and he loves it. He laps from the bowl and from the spout and hasn't been in the sink since!
Amazing! Just like magic...
Brandon is finally drinking more water!! He wasn’t very keen and preferred milk over water. Since I set the fountain for him, he was so curious and loved the water movement. I am so happy and less worried because I am sure he is drinking more water now!! I totally recommend it.
Grace is definitely drinking more !!
I got this as I ended up with an elderly cat that wasn't drinking enough, I had a fountain in the past for my other cat so I know they do encourage cars to drink more. The design is nice, the noise takes a little bit of getting used to but I would still recommend the product
